In recognition of long-time volunteer and Pyramid's first Manager, the Munday Curd Scholarship started back in 2005 to honor his legacy and contributions. Mr. Munday Curd personified the credit union “people helping people” philosophy for almost 30 years.
Through his guidance, Pyramid grew from just $10,000 in assets to $3.8 million; from one employee in a back bedroom of his home for an office, drawing $150 a year salary to 13 part-time employees in a four-room office before he retired in 1977.
Today, at nearly $180 million in assets and over 60 employees, Pyramid owes our success and future to Mr. Curd’s solid financial stewardship and compassion for our members and community.
Since 2005, Pyramid has awarded 70 scholarships of $1000 to deserving high school seniors.
The Munday Curd Scholarship helped ease the financial stress of higher education. I was able to focus on my studies and graduate with a 4.0 GPA!
